New Chakra Roll-Ons!

Ever since we first introduced our Chakra Synergy line last Fall, we have had resounding and repeated requests to produce our Chakra Synergy line in pre-diluted roll-ons.

We heard you and we have delivered!

You can now purchase the pre-diluted roll-on chakra synergies as a set of seven, or you can purchase each individually. The set comes in the same beautiful keepsake box as our undiluted synergy line, complete with a printed booklet.

We want to make it simple for anyone who wants to bring self-balancing practices into their life for a greater sense of wellbeing. And, they are perfect for those who are on the go and don’t wish to blend them yourself.   

Whether you’re an experienced practitioner of chakra healing techniques or someone who hasn’t even a clue what the word “chakra” means, these roll-ons make a perfect addition to any self-care routine you have.

Want to learn more? One of our amazing Certified Aromatherapists, Ellen Brenner, has written two exceptional blogs that dive deeper into the subjects of chakras and subtle aromatherapy:

Reintroduction of Loving Compassion

With the introduction of our pre-blended Chakra Synergy line, we want to share with you our reintroduction of a fan favorite, Loving Compassion.

The market for Fragonia has been fraught since wildfires burned the solely available crops in December 2015 that were scheduled to be harvested in 2016. Fragonia has been replanted, and the aromatherapy community is hopeful this precious crop will be fruitful. With nature we wait.  It will be at least another year before Fragonia is available again.

Not only is Fragonia a popular single essential oil, it also has been an important supporting essential oil in our Loving Compassion Synergy.  And, demand for both of these favorites ran high.

With all this in mind, and with the introduction of our Chakra Roll-On Synergies, we are very pleased to be able to continue to offer Loving Compassion, introducing Rhododendron in place of Fragonia. We think you will be just as pleased with the similar scent, the same subtle aromatherapy uses, therapeutic value, and price.

Now let’s take a closer look at our new roll-ons!

Each one is diluted at 3% in Fractionated Coconut Oil and can be applied directly to your skin! At 10 mL each, they make perfect travel buddies, too!

How to use the pre-diluted Chakra Synergy roll-ons:

  • Dab them onto the correlating chakra points and rub gently in a clockwise direction.
  • Use as anointing oils by applying directly  to the chakra. Or, anoint the palms of the hands, hold over the chakra, and then inhale.
  • Use on pulse points for a personal aromatic perfume by simply choosing based on how they make you feel.

Grounded Foundation1st Chakra (Root): Use to help, soothe, calm, and relax when you are feeling disconnected and distressed. Helps to create a sense of security, protection, and hope. Supports feelings of trust and belonging. Firmly grounding and centering, while allowing a sense of expansiveness and higher connection. 

Grounded foundation has a rich, earthy blend with a hint of sweet spice comprised of oils considered sacred treasures.

 

Joyful Creation2nd Chakra (Sacral): Use this synergy to help nurture inspired creativity, spontaneity, passion, and expansion in the birth of new concepts. It encourages harmony, warmth, and enthusiasm in relationships. Joyful Creation helps to clear energetic blocks related to relationships and creative expression, while inviting a sense of joy and enthusiasm in moving forward toward transformation.  

Joyful Creation has a lushly layered and smooth floral scent that continues to unfold as it reaches the senses.

 

Self Manifestation 3rd Chakra (Solar Plexus): Helps to quiet the mind so that we may go inward to tap into our own sense of self-definition and autonomy with clarity. This strengthens our sense of self-empowerment with enthusiasm, stamina, and motivation. It nourishes our sense of self-worth with courage, confidence, and optimism. It also invites positive, cleansing energy to support manifestation of our purpose, while encouraging warmth and graciousness toward others.

Self Manifestation has a softly sweet punch of power and spice.

 

 

Loving Compassion4th Chakra (Heart): Comforting and calming, use this synergy to help to ease wounds of the heart and nourish the spirit. It helps to clear and cleanse deep wounds and blocks, while opening and uplifting the heart center. This synergy invites positive energy and encourages a joyful outlook and outward connection, and promotes unconditional love for self and others with compassion and acceptance. 

Loving Compassion has a soothing and softly rosy and green aroma, that is a synergy for the soul.

 

True Expression5th Chakra (Throat): Use this synergy to support clear communication in integrity with yourself and others. Soothing, cooling, and calming to the spirit, while nurturing a sense of self-esteem, confidence, and strength, this unique synergy helps to release energetic congestion to create a sense of opening and expansion. It helps to connect to our inner essence, as well as higher consciousness, so that we may know and outwardly express our authentic selves through truth.

True Expression is cooling, fruity, and refreshing with an herbal undertone.

 

Clear Intuition6th Chakra (Third Eye): Use this synergy to quiet the conscious mind and encourage introspection. Helps to connect to a higher state of consciousness while remaining grounded in peace. Promotes the ability to “clearly see” through intuition, insights, and clarity. It invites creation energy and inspires possibility.

Clear Intuition is a softly intoxicating synergy with fresh and clearing aromas.

 

Higher Connection7th Chakra (Crown): Use to help strengthen your purpose and ability to connect to higher spiritual consciousness. Invites pure, radiant, and joyful energy allowing connection with greater self-knowledge and our higher selves.  Nourishes the spirit with a sense of wholeness throughout our whole being while helping to heal spiritual wounds. Gently encourages strength in our spiritual growth to know greater love and deeper purpose.

Higher Connection has a warm, shimmering, and radiant heady scent gently wreathing the senses in its bloom.

We hope you enjoy these new roll-ons as much as we do!

The Ultimate Guide to Allergies and Essential Oils

Allergies happen, and they’re not fun.

You’re not alone! 40-60 million Americans suffer from allergies every year.

Allergies affect everyone differently, ranging from mild sniffles to severe breathing issues and constant itching.

We’ve all been there: When it feels like your eyes just won’t stop watering, or you’ll never stop sneezing. Why even bother wearing makeup when you have to blow your nose every 30 seconds?

We’ve put together a definitive guide to allergies and essential oils to help you out:

 

What’s an allergy, and what causes them?

Allergies are an abnormal reaction to an otherwise harmless substance, like animal dander, pollen, mold, or certain foods.  An allergy sufferer’s immune system identifies these things as being bad for the body, even when they’re not.

Allergy symptoms are different for everyone,  ranging from minor irritation (sniffles and itching) to anaphylaxis — a potentially life-threatening emergency (in other words, really, really bad news). While most allergies have no true “cure,” there are ways to ease the symptoms associated with them.

 

How can essential oils help minimize the effects of this seasonal threat?

Essential oils are super concentrated, aromatic liquids extracted from different parts of plant known to help ease symptoms associated with many different issues. Essential oils are also an excellent choice to help ease symptoms associated with allergies, plus they’re a safe (and all-natural) option.

Used for both healing and aromatic benefits, essential oils can help ease symptoms associated with seasonal allergies.

 

Ways to utilize essential oils to support respiratory relief include:

 

These are our top 5 best essential oils for symptom relief:

Our team of Plant Therapy Certified Aromatherapists have nailed down the the top 5 essential oils that help ease symptoms associated with seasonal allergies:

 

There are several ways these Essential Oils can help:

Get on-the-go relief: Personal inhalers are great little tools that you can keep in your pocket or purse. They can go almost anywhere with you, and last for 3-4 months once you’ve mixed them. Perfect for pollen season!

Here’s how to mix your Essential Oils for a personal inhaler:

  1. You’ll need empty personal inhalers, with cotton wicks. Place the wicks in a small glass bowl.
  2. Add 6-8 drops of one of the top five essential oils listed above.
  3. Gently roll the wick through the oil, making sure it is all gets absorbed.
  4. Place the wick into the inhaler and snap the end cap into place.

Get relief at home: Try using one of the top five essential oils listed above in your diffuser at home. 6-8 drops diffused for about 60 minutes will not only make you whole house smell great, but also gives you relief from the respiratory discomfort.

All of the above essential oils are also KidSafe! Which means your whole household benefits, not just the grown-ups.

Get instant relief with a face steam: Use one drop of Fir Needle in a very warm (not boiling!) bowl of water. Position your head over the bowl and cover with a towel for 5 minutes, keeping your eyes closed.

Breath deeply, and let the aroma of Fir Needle penetrate into your lungs.

TIP: Don’t use this technique with small children, and take care to avoid burning yourself with the warm water.

 

Synergies to support overall respiratory health:

Another great option to help during this time are our 2 synergies created to help with seasonal pollen threats.

Adults can use both synergies, but Clear Again is not KidSafe and not recommended for children under the age of 10.

Use these synergies in a personal inhaler, in your favorite Plant Therapy aromatherapy diffuser, or a diffuser locket.

You can also apply Sneezy Stop to the chest or neck, when diluted at a 1-3% with your favorite carrier oil. And Clear Again when diluted at a 3-5% ratio. This method is great for night time, and lets the oil do it’s work while you sleep.

 

When the Mind Runs Amok

By Ellen Brenner, Certified Aromatherapist


With a new year, many of us start a fresh set of intentions for improving our health and wellbeing. So, we count steps walked and clock miles ran. We count calories and reps at the gym or laps in the pool. And, some of us measure our BMI, numbers on the scale, or the inches around our waist.

But, what about counting our breath?

Wait. What? Why?

Ok, let me back up a bit.

We often put the focus squarely and solely on the measures of our physical health. But, ehnancing our emotional and mental health is just as important.

From Surviving to Thriving with the Power of Essential Oils

By Ellen Brenner, Certified Aromatherapist


If you’ve followed my blogs, you are likely familiar with my backstory. Unhappily successful executive desperately wants to jump off the rapidly racing treadmill, is too afraid, and literally and figuratively gets run off the road in a life-threatening, life-altering blink-of-an-eye moment. Wakes up, literally and figuratively, to a new reality of re-learning how to move more step-wise through life in search of restoration and revitalization.

5 Natural Ways to Manage Stress

Natural stress relief is possible with aromatherapy.

As we continue on this pathway toward a new, better you, one resolution that many people are making is: Manage stress better.

This subject can seem a little daunting to talk about because there are so many coping techniques — and what works for one, might not work for others. But hopefully this article will help you learn which essential oils and techniques, together, can help you manage stress and become a better you.

According to the American Psychological Association, “Stress occurs when you perceive that demands placed on you — such as work, school or relationships — exceed your ability to cope. Some stress can be beneficial at times, producing a boost that provides the drive and energy to help people get through situations like exams or work deadlines. However, an extreme amount of stress can have health consequences, affecting the immune, cardiovascular and neuroendocrine and central nervous systems, and take a severe emotional toll”.(2)

Essential Oil Well-being: Be Gentle, Be Generous, Be Grateful

By Ellen Brenner, Certified Aromatherapist

Essential well-being. Where mind, body, and spirit meet aromatherapy.


Essential Wellbeing: Where mind, body and spirit meet aromatherapy.

As you may know, from reading my previous blogs, the catalyst for my own healing journey started with a traumatic injury. I mention this here because, in retrospect, there is actually a prequel to that moment in time.

Prior to the accident, I did not live a healthy life. I lived the idea of the “American Dream.” Marriage, dream house, well-educated, big job, nice car, travel to amazing places. Regardless of what it took for me, and what it took out of me, I persisted in how life was “meant to be.”

Essential Oils for Better Sleep

Thankfully, there are several all-natural ways to improve your sleep, so if you are really serious about getting more quality snooze time, try these suggestions.How did you sleep last night?

This simple question may not be something you think about, but perhaps you should. According to findings from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (1), more than one-third of Americans are sleep-deprived, meaning millions of groggy people are struggling to pull themselves out of bed every day. There’s a good reason why the energy drink industry is an explosive multi-billion dollar business! Fatigue during the day can cause potentially hazardous outcomes, especially when driving drowsy, and those caffeinated drinks are immediate stimulates. But it’s important to remember they are only brief quick-fixes for the very serious problem of sleep deprivation.

Regularly skimping on deep rest can lead to high blood pressure, obesity, and other metabolic diseases. When feelings of excessive sleepiness begin, it is often accompanied with irritability and overactive emotions. Sleep deprivation can cause cognitive problems, such as difficulty focusing, slowed speech, impaired memory, and an inability to concentrate.

Sleep like a baby again

Most of us learn about the importance of quality sleep when we are young; however, as adults, those recommended 7 to 8 hours of snoozing become so elusive. With all the daily to-dos, demands from work, home, or school, sleep tends to get pushed aside. For whatever reason, something so critical to our health and well-being falls off our list of priorities, and our bodies respond immediately. A good night’s rest isn’t just good for your energy level the next day — when asleep, our bodies are hard at work repairing, replenishing, and replacing cells, while also releasing growth hormones to rebuild muscles and joints.

Unfortunately, regularly getting a full night of restful sleep is a lot easier said than done. And if your nighttime routine has been inconsistent, it may take a while to re-train your body (see aromatherapist Ellen Brenner’s Slipping Into Slumber article to learn how).

Prescription and over-the-counter sleep medications usually have a pretty long list of side-effects. Some can become addictive, and over time drugs may impair cognitive abilities.

Thankfully, there are several all-natural ways to improve your sleep. So if you are really serious about getting more quality snooze time, try these suggestions:
  1. Using essential oils for a good night’s rest is an all-natural alternative worth trying. Plant Therapy offers a variety of synergy blends and single oils to fit your needs. Using Relax Synergy is a great way to promote a peaceful, tranquil state of mind and wind down after a stressful day.  Sleep Aid Synergy was specially designed by our Certified Aromatherapists to help calm your mind and body into relaxation before going to bed. If you have children in your home, consider trying KidSafe Nighty Night Synergy, which promotes a calming and peaceful atmosphere to help safely lull your little ones — and you! — into a deep and restful sleep. Single oils, such as Lavender, Mandarin, Vetiver, and Rose Absolute are known for their relaxing and balancing properties, making them perfect additions to your bedtime routine. Remember, everyone is made up a little differently; what helps you fall and stay asleep may be different than someone else. So don’t be afraid to try different essential oils to learn what works best for you.
  2. Add some daily exercise into your schedule! Don’t fret over what time is “best” to get your workout in — just do it! People who work out regularly sleep better and longer than those who don’t. Set aside time in your day to get your heart rate up, join a HIIT program, or sign up for yoga.
  3. Limit your screen time before bed. TVs. Computers. Phones. Tablets. These are all brain stimulates that can make it challenging to fall asleep if you use them too close to bedtime. The light emitted from electronics promotes wakefulness and inhibit the release of your body’s sleep-inducing hormone melatonin. Many electronic devices have an option to reduce their output of blue light by using warmer colors to the light up the screen. This causes less restlessness before bedtime if you absolutely have to have an electronic device on.
  4. Assess your sleep space. Is your bedroom always a mess? Is it too cold or too warm? Does your mattress cause you to wake up with a sore back? The environment you sleep in seriously impacts your ability to snooze well. Look around your room and see where you can make improvements. While buying a new mattress may not be in your budget right now, quick changes like decluttering your room or adjusting the thermostat will create a more ideal sleep space.
  5. Eat and drink lightly before bed. Eating too much food before sleeping can overload your digestive system, affecting how well you are able to sleep. Try to finish eating at least one hour before you head off to bed. Stop drinking about two hours before bed to lower the odds of getting up in the middle of the night. Waking in the middle of the night when nature calls can make it hard to fall back asleep quickly.

Don’t let sleeplessness control your life! Regularly getting a full night of restful slumber is one of the best things you can do for your body and mind. Making small adjustments to your evening routine can make huge positive changes for your health. We hope you consider adding some aromatherapy into your nighttime environment to really settle down and get the rest you deserve!

We want to hear from you! What are your tips and tricks for getting a good night’s rest? Share in the comments below. Maybe something you share will help someone else — after all, we at Plant Therapy are here to support one another on our well-being journeys!

When You Have a Case of the Mondays

Start your week off on the right foot, beat the Monday Blues, and achieve your weekly goals. Let’s face it:  Sometimes the biggest threat to achieving our personal goals is the momentum-blocker known as Monday. It’s the dreaded day after the delightful weekend, and we can often feel uninspired, cranky, or tired. We all know how it feels to have “a case of the Mondays.” Symptoms of this may include:

  • Bad mood
  • Sense of Restlessness
  • A lack of motivation
  • Tiredness
  • A longing for the upcoming weekend
  • Not feeling like you can face the long week ahead
What can we do to beat back the Monday Blues?

Stay on top of these symptoms with essential oils! Plant Therapy’s Blues Buster Synergy is a great option to help ease these symptoms. Here are several ideas that incorporate essential oils to help you come out on top when you have a case of the Mondays:

Start a New Monday Morning Routine

Why not incorporate a new Monday routine into your life? A great way to start your morning to help ease a case of the Mondays is to diffuse an uplifting scent in your aromatherapy diffuser. Blues Buster synergy is an uplifting, bright aroma. Plant Therapy’s team of certified aromatherapists formulated it to increase your sensory and emotional well-being. Starting your Monday off with this aroma will help get your week started on the right foot, so that you can charge into the workweek with a positive mindset.

“Never Miss a Monday”

This is a common phrase thrown around social media, referring to the mantra of never skipping a Monday workout. But you can use this mantra to make sure you look at Monday from a different perspective.

Never missing a Monday can mean:

  • Always set aside time for yourself to work on personal development and growth.
  • Make time for family.
  • Set aside “me time” to focus on something you enjoy, i.e. reading a book, watching your favorite show, cooking something new, etc.

Add Blues Buster to your personal aromatherapy inhaler and sniff before you start the activity. That way, the aroma will be linked to your Monday activity.

Sleep

Making sure you get a good night’s rest on Sunday night can help your Mondays not seem as daunting. About an hour before bedtime, add Relax Synergy to your favorite body care product and rub on the shoulders. This relaxing massage method will help ease the tension from the day, which will promote a relaxed state and help you unwind after a busy weekend.

Count Your Blessings

Take a moment out of your Monday, add Blues Busters to your personal inhaler or diffuser, inhale, and start counting your blessings. What are you thankful for and what are some positive aspects in your life? With the combination of a mood-enhancing aroma and positive thinking, your “case of the Mondays” will soon disappear as you focus on what you are thankful for.

The Monday blahs can seem like a looming giant, but being proactive with some of these ideas, combined with essential oils like Blues Buster, you can turn Monday into your favorite day of the week! Start your week off right, and make Monday a day to look forward to.

What techniques do you use to break the Monday Blues? Tell us in the comments below! You never know, a suggestion you share may make a huge difference in another reader’s life. We’re all in this together!

Top 8 Essential Oils for Sore Muscle Relief

Essential oils can help provide relief from sore, achy muscles and joints.
Essential oils can help provide relief from sore, achy muscles and joints.
Did you know: The No. 1 most common New Year’s resolution, according to a 2015 Nielsen survey, is to “Stay fit and healthy.”

With weight loss and health atop most people’s New Year’s to-do list, more exercise is essential. The extra physical activity can often lead to sore muscles.

Our New Year New You goal at Plant Therapy is to help you succeed in 2018. That’s why we’ve created this essential oils reference guide to relieving sore muscles and achy joints.

Essential Oils for Sore Muscle Relief

Rapid ReliefNew Year, New You 2018

This popular blend is helpful for sore joints and discomfort that comes with over exercise, aging joints, or that occasional bump and minor injury. It contains warming oils that help with circulation which will bring relief. This is great is a blend with our Aloe Vera Jelly or with a carrier oil or butter. Rapid Relief is one of the pre-diluted roll-ons featured in Plant Therapy’s New Year New You Set!

Black Pepper

Yes, Black Pepper is good for tummy issues and for respiratory congestion. But did you know, Black Pepper is also very helpful for sore muscles? The major constituents in this versatile essential oil, b-caryophyllene and d-limonene, make it a good choice for soothing swollen, sore muscles.

Roman Chamomile

Many people know that Roman Chamomile can be calming to emotions. The great thing about this essential oil is that it is also calming to your skin and body tissue as well. It reduces tightness and swelling, and relaxes those knots that can build up after a strenuous workout or a stressful day.

Marjoram

I didn’t used to pay much attention to Marjoram. I owe Marjoram an apology.  Sweet Marjoram has many attributes; it is supportive to the immune system, it is calming to the mind, it helps with digestion and cramping, it is there for seasonal threats, and of course it is great at relieving body and muscle discomfort and swelling. Good thing Marjoram is “sweet” and doesn’t hold a grudge!

Geranium

Geranium isn’t just a rosy smelling essential oil! It is a force to be reckoned with in combating discomfort and swelling. Both of our Geraniums, Bourbon and Egyptian can be interchanged and both address sore muscles and even sore joints due to over-exertion. In addition, it helps with skin issues, with mood, and also inhibits the growth of bacteria.

Tension Relief

As a massage therapist, I find this blend very helpful for sore shoulder muscles and tight necks. It can loosen those tight tendons and muscles, and help your neck and head move more freely. Dilute to 2-3% with a carrier oil and have someone massage it into that area for an “ahhhh” feeling.

Muscle Aid

A natural choice to help one feel better after trying to relive your athletic high school days! Muscle Aid was formulated by Plant Therapy’s Certified Aromatherapists and essential oil expert Robert Tisserand. It combines some powerful oils (Wintergreen, Camphor and Pine) to bring relief.

Muscle Aloe Jelly

This is a convenient blend for weekend warriors and many of our customers love it! It dries quickly and goes to work to help reduce the achy soreness that comes from a marathon, an intense gym workout, or playing with the kids.

Do you have a New Year’s resolution to exercise more? Finish a triathlon? Simply be more active? Tell us about it in the comments below, and let’s support one another on our wellness journeys!

Can Essential Oils Help Me Lose Weight?

Aromatherapy, along with a healthy diet and exercise, can help you lose weight.
Aromatherapy, along with a healthy diet and exercise, can help with weight loss.
Can Essential Oils Help Me Lose Weight?

This is a good question, and the answer may surprise you.

Humans have a keen sense of smell. Scientists know that when we are hungry, our bodies boost the performance of our sense of smell in order to improve our chances of finding food (1). This is a survival mechanism. When we are hungry, food smells and tastes amazing, leading to the easy conclusion that if we let ourselves get too hungry, we are very likely to overeat.

Scientific research shows that we prefer sweet smells, and that strongly sweet scents such as chocolate often triggers feelings of hunger and leads to overeating or binge eating, while “neutral” sweet smells actually curbs appetite. A scientific study asked 3,193 overweight people (mostly women) aged 18-64 to inhale a variety of what was considered neutral sweet smells: banana, green apple, vanilla, and peppermint, three times in each nostril whenever they were hungry. After six months, the participants lost an average of five pounds per month (2).

Diffusing the right essential oils can help curb appetite, and assist you to lose weight.
Diffusing the right essential oils can help curb appetite, and assist you to lose weight.

It makes sense that smell plays a large part in our hunger cues. If humans’ olfactory systems become enhanced when hungry, it is reasonable to believe that suppressing smell may decrease appetite.

In consideration of essential oils, inhalation is the single most effective way to receive their benefits. When aromas reach the olfactory bulb, they not only trigger the limbic system (emotional center), it triggers your hypothalamus, too. The hypothalamus is the portion of your brain that is connected to satiety. Odor molecules actually inform your brain that you have eaten enough and you are full. You see, it is not only our stomach that dictates our hunger!

Therefore, specific essential oils can be used in an inhaler to curb our food cravings. We know based on the above study that certain smells work better than others; but remember, we are not all the same, so personal experimentation may be in order. One thing is for sure: The aromas of essential oils can definitely play a role in weight loss through curbing cravings.

For this cause, Plant Therapy’s team of Certified Aromatherapists created Munchy Stop Synergy (reformulated in late 2017). We designed this blend to help manage hunger cravings, promote healthy eating habits, and help reduce the desire to snack between meals.

Munchy Stop blends the 100% pure, undiluted essential oils of Copaiba, Grapefruit Pink, Tumeric CO2, Lemon Myrtle, and Yuzu.

Here are 5 more single oils that can help you along your weight loss journey:

Peppermint can boost energy levels, which can help maximize your workouts. Not to mention, its soothing properties can help soothe sore muscles after exercise.

Lemon is also a stimulating oil. It promotes a positive mood, which will keep you in a positive mindset.

Lavender and Bergamot are calming, relaxing oils. Over-stressed people tend to overeat, or eat unhealthily. Naturally, if you can lower your stress level, you can better avoid stress-eating (also known as emotional eating).

Grapefruit Pink, diluted to 1% in a carrier oil, can be applied topically to the abdomen to aid with digestive upset.

We hope that this clears up any questions you had in regards to using essential oils for weight loss. If you have any further questions or need clarification, please comment below or reach out to one of our on-staff aromatherapists:  aromatherapist@planttherapy.com.
